Subject: For the most part, very strong Dead.
I feel like '76 can be equally lazy/sloppy in regards to consistency of timing and getting all the little stuff that makes the song, the song, and lazy in regards to the improvisation as, say, post-'89 Dead... sometimes! These are just tendencies I notice more in certain years, but sometimes. Not in every show, and this show impresses the heck out of me. At times, it's brilliantly emotional and just euphoric, as in Wharf Rat, tender and haunting. Listen to everything in its entirety, but especially after 9 minutes and 11 seconds in the last Dancing in the Street... the tightness and general flow of it makes you almost think it's '73. Listen to the Stella Blue (dust off those rusty strings just one more time- gonna make 'em shine... oh Jerry), the Sugaree, the TN Jed, the Row Jimmy, and the Wheel into Round and Round for a "huh" little grin are also good listens, especially... and now that I think of it, honestly one of my favorite H>S>F's ever! I have the soundcheck tape and it's glorious playing, but the quality is unlistenable... as if they recorded it from the little boy's room. Really strong, sincere sounding Dead from the bicentennial of our collective US Blues. Enjoy!

Stop being such an annoying douche regarding Donna (ie "why isn't Donna's mike turned way down") Obnoxious, opinionated "Deadhead". This recording is great for 76. The Wheel is always nice...

Good version of Lazy Lightnin, worth a listen.

Subject: Donna is always miked too loud
why was Donna's mic never turned way down? Her singing with Jerry was nice but her harmonies with Bob were never pleasant -

Subject: mellow show
This show seems to be as good as other '76 performances, but the music seems a little subdued. There were no balls-out-rockers, but they still seemed to be "ON" for each song. Supplication is good, as is Slipnot, with Wharf Rat giving that extra special "something" to the show as a whole.

Subject: Lotta music here
Last part is first with a killer eyes and some hot jams which I guess were warm ups and sound test but have superior sound. The show itself is solid but pretty standard fare for '76.

Subject: Good stuff
Not extraordinary but the second set is worth checking out, especially if you like '76 in general.
